People who experience complex and entrenched disadvantage are being forgotten because of the fallacy of average levels of advantage, a new Catholic Social Services Australia report has revealed. Mapping the Potential, a partnership between CSSA, 21 of its members and the Australian National University’s Centre for Social Research Methods, goes beyond the usual analysis of advantage and disadvantage.

Each week, the Victorian Council of Social Services (VCOSS) is sending out a weekly email, which aims to provide the latest high-level advice and resources relevant to the Victorian community sector. This will happen until the pandemic subsides. We are grateful to VCOSS for this resource and will share this information, too. Suitable content from these updates are posted to the VCOSS COVID-19 pagehowever, the best place to access up-to-date health advice remains the Department of Health and Human Services page, dhhs.vic.gov.au/coronavirus

The March 2020 edition of Catholic Social Services Victoria's eNews is out now. It includes the latest news and events from us at CSSV, as well as those from our many member organisations. Executive director, Josh Lourensz addresses the challenging times ahead regarding COVID-19 and its impact on social services and vulnerable members of our community. There are many highlights from our recent national Catholic social services conference, Serving Communities with Courage and Compassion; and we farewell Peter Hudson, our Member Network and Support Coordinator, who has been with CSSV for the past 7.5 years.

Tuesday 10th March 2020 was a history-making moment in the life of Highways and Byways: A Community of Service and the Missionary Sisters of Service (MSS). They launched their first ever longer-term program of community support, ‘Seeds of Connection, a partnership with Megan Brown of Chandra Yoga and Wellbeing in Roma, Queensland and supported by Jen Coggan of Injune. More than 50 community members gathered at the launch to hear more of the program and to witness the commissioning of Megan and Jen as partners with Highways and Byways by Emeritus Bishop Bill Morris.
